The Office of the President invites members of the Webster University community (faculty, staff, students, alumni and their families) to participate in the City of Webster Groves’ Community Days Parade on Thursday, July 4, and represent the University in this major community event.

Volunteer to Walk or Ride a Bike in the Parade July 4

We need both energetic walkers to hand out small items to the crowd during the parade on July 4 along with six people who are able to slowly ride a decorated bike through the parade (decorated bike will be provided).

The route, lined with enthusiastic revelers, is approximately two miles long and takes about 70 minutes to complete. Rides will be provided from the end of the parade route (the Webster Groves Recreational Center) back to the parking lot behind Webster Hall.

Walkers will gather behind Webster Hall at 9:15 a.m. before going together to the staging area, usually on the north side of Lockwood Ave., in front of Holy Redeemer School (341 E. Lockwood). Participants are encouraged to wear their own Webster University attire.

If you would like to participate as a bike rider, walker or as a wheel-walker (monitoring float vehicle safety), please contact Jennifer Starkey, director of Community Engagement, at jenstarkey@webster.edu, including your name/guest name(s), Webster affiliation/title/department, phone and email.
